The International Association for Media and History (IAMHIST) is pleased to announce its XXIV biennial conference, on the theme of Media History and Cultural Memory, to be held at Copenhagen University Wednesday, July 6- Saturday, July 9, 2011.
The conference will look at the ways in which media history is interwoven with the concept of cultural memory. Media such as radio, television, film, and the internet are used to create, represent, transmit, revise, and preserve collective constructions of history and identity. Media hold complex and evolving roles in the ways that individuals and groups understand the moments and events of their pasts, at all levels of social organization (local, regional, national, transnational). These understandings inform policy, politics, and the performance of identity, laying the foundation for future interpretations and understandings, and carrying past and present affiliations, conflicts, glory, and trauma forward in time.
Proposals and inquiries should be directed to Karsten Fledelius at
The deadline for submissions is December 1, 2010.
